With the testimony of Pearl Keller, a nurse; Dr. Ludwig Ilektocn, ilrs. Logan Swopo and Dr. Frank Hall in tho inquest on the body of tho late Colonel Swopo, al Independence, today, came develop ments in the mystery of tho million aire's death moro startling than any facts herotoforo adducod. Miss Keller's detailed story of tho last moments of Swope's life was re plete with startling features of the happenings in the Swopc household and produced a sensation. Hn pjirnfnllv hail tho stnrv lieon mmril ed that ,nlthough much has been writ ten and rumored about tho case, not un til today una nnyono outsiuo um im mediate circle interested in the inquiry hgard the narrntive. Miss Keller testified that: Immediately following the death o' Colonel Thomas Ilunton, Dr. K. C Hydo asked her to use her influence with Swope to have him appointed ad ministrator of the Swopo estate. On the morning of Swope's death she gavo him n threo-grain capsule supposed to contain dyspepsia medicine, at the direction of Dr. Hyde. Twenty minutes later Swope was in convulsions. Death soon followed. Five minutes after Colonel Swope's death, Hydo appeared and, with Attor ney John Paxton, took Colonel Swope's will from his vest pocket. Dr. Hecktocn testified that: Stryclinino in liver One-sixth of a grain of morphine- was found iu one-seventh part ot Swope's liver. It is believed there might be a grain in the entire organ. Half a grain would cause death, i races or sirycn nine were found in the stomach. The srychnine might have been in jected into the body after Heath. Hu did not believe the taking of medicine containing strychnine would leave as much as a grain of poison in tho liver. Mrs. Swopo testified that: Dr. Hyde knew Colonel Swope's in tention to give a million and a half to charity and his plan to change his will to this effect. He also said that Swopo had told Itviln Iip had nlatincd to uivo Thomas Swojiclhe largest part of the estate. She denied that she entertained an ill feeling against Hyde. Dr. Hull said he was absolutely cer tain Swope did uot die of cerebral hem orrhage or apoplexy. O. II. Gentry, a druggist of Indc pendenccfi said he prepared the medi cine for Swopo and that it contained el ixir o iron, quinine and strychnine. The strychnine in n teaspoonful amount ed to only one one hundred and eight ieth of a grain, he said: Hyde Hears Evidence Hyde was' again-present at tho in quest today and heard every word of the testimony. Especially did he fol low the testimony of Miss Keller close ly, but he gave no sign that the narra tive perturbed him in the lcast. In the tense moments, when Miss Keller described tho dying actions of Swope, jurprs and spectators leaned for ward and listened eagerly to every word. Sho told in detail how she gave the man a capsule and how ho passed into convulsions. Ho cried: "Oh, my God, I wish I had not taken that medicine. I wish I was dead." Miss Keller also said that Hyde sug gested to her she ought to charge $35 instead of $23 ir week for her services. After she had given most of her tes timony and the room was quiet. Coro ner B. II. Sowart asked her: "Do you know anything that might have caused Swope's death other than tho capsulo?'3' "T ln not." she rcnlicd firmlv. The report mado by Dr. ncktoen onj the liver was supported by affidavits. of Drs. waiter names and victor Vaughn. The report of the condition of the stomach was given verbally by ncktoen. Injected After Death? Ilcktoen said tho examination of the organs of tho body had not been com pleted. A question that may have a great bearing upon tho case was asked by a juryman this afternoon. It was, "Could the body absorb strychnine that had been injected after death?" "Yes," nektoen replied. "If .the stryclinino had beon injocted after death and tho -body had lain a long time, tho poisou could have found its way to other parts of the body through diu'usion. Strychnine would have to bo in solution for thatwould spread through tho tissues." Ilcktoen said, however, that strych nine would not diffnso through a body irozen, as was Swopo 's. Mrs. Swopo told of many eccentric ities of Swope. Sho said sho had thought for twonty-fivo years his death was imminont. "I'm tho samo as a dead man," iho testified ho onco said to a relative. "I'm just walking around to euvo fun eral expenses."

The owners of property in that part of the city were yesterday granted a continuance until Friday, in Judge Hin son Thomas' court, but it is probable that tho women will be forced out of tho district entirely and' the prosecution of tho property owners dropped, as a natural consequence. So far the women of the half world have failed to find quarters and what they will do when they' are forced out of tho old red light district remains to be seen. City MarshnI Bob Ander son states that they wilPnot be allowed to take up quarters elsewhere in the residence part of tho city and as the re sult, it is probable .tli'at the present women will bo forced out of the city, leaving new ones to come in and, by reason of being unknown to tho of ficers, scatter throughout the city. FLYNN REATS BLJVGK SCRAPPER LAST EVENING LOS ANGELES, Fcbruary.8. Flynn not only stayed ten rounds of fierce fighting with Langford tonight,, but won the newspaper decision over the so called "Black Demon." . Charles Eyton, referee, said afterward that Flynn had the best of it from start to finish. Flynn went after Langford at the start of the first and kept after him all through, forcing the negro to the rope-s mnny times, and not allowing him to not for one of his well known counters. Up to the third tho negro was unable to land a single effective blow. The fourth, fifth and sixth were all Flynn 's. Tn the tenth Flynn again forced the black tolircak ground. At the end the crowd acclaimed the white man winner. In th esccond Flynn caught Langford in the center and wrestled him to the floor. The black was up instantly, light ing, but in an exchange at close quar ters the fireman seemed all the better. He gave Langford no chance to back away and landed rights and lefts re pcatdely to Langford 's body and face. In the third Flynn opened a gash over Langford 's eye and peppered him all through. Bot'1 fighters slowed up at the end of the sixth and honors were even un il the ninth when Flynn cut loos again, after receiving a hard right to the neck.

With the completion of the coroner's inquest at Kelvin late this afternoon, over the re mains of the seven men who met death in Sunday's disaster, one of the worst accidents to happen in this part of the territory in years has gone down in his tory without anyone being censured for the affair. While the coroner's jury made a careful investigation of the affair, no living person could be blamed for the explosion which cost so many lives, and the verdicts wero non committal.

V V CHARGES MADE FOR WINES AND CIGARS- Immigration Junket Bitter ly Attacked in House by Macon Yesterdaj'- For tho first rlmo in the history of this city, candidates for municipal po sitions will lc 'nominated under the new direct primary law, when the city campaign reaches that stage, on April 23. The new primary law was adopt ed at the last session of the legislature and as it will bo used for tho first time in Arizona this spring, much interest Is manifest in its workings To the unitiatcd. the provisions of tho direct primary law are a trifle com plex and it is possible that the provi sions regarding the securing of a peti tion by tho prospective candidates may' causc municipal oflice seekers to burn the midnight oil for a few nights, fig uring out a plan of campaign, but on the whole, tho new law will probably work out in a very satisfactory manner. With respect to the candidates, the chief difference in tho new law is that they arc nominated directly by the peo ple and not by a nominating committee and that they must be placed m position for nomination by a petition. For oflicers to be elected from the city at large, such as tho mayor, city clerk, city marshal and supervisor of streets, at least two petitions, signed by not less than five per cent of the party voters from each of two of tho six wards of the city must be filed and in addition to the ward qualifications of these petitions, they must contain at least five per cent of tho total party vote cast at the last municipal election. Nominees for aldermen must file sim ilar petitions or nominating papers, signed by at least five per cent of the voters from their respective wards. These nominating papers must bo filed with tho city clerk not later than March 14. Between that time and tho holding of the primaries, tho city clerk will draw up sample ballots for each political party and submit tho samo to tho different parties. From these sample ballots, general ballots, to be used at the primaries, will bo made. In addition to these changes in the firoccodiugs for candidates, ono very important change has been made with regard to voters, by the addition of the educational qualification to the election law. By this educational qualification, no ono can register who cannot write his WITH MEXICANS m?n n.amc a" wn0 i,.annot rcau" tn n- aiiiiiiiuii in. uic uuiiuu oiuivs, nr uuy part of this document, in a manner showing that it has not been committed to memory. In addition to this qualification, electors must have been residents of Arizona for ono year prior to the pri mary or election, as the case may be, and must havo been a resident, of tho county or precinct for thirty days prior to the casting of a vote . Electors must pass tho educational qualification test at tho time of regis tering, and as this test has not been re quired at any previous election, every voter in this city must re-rccister in I order to take part in cithor the coming primaries or tiiq election which lollows. At tomorrow night's session of the council, a resolution a1Hng the pri maries and probably another order fix ing the date of tho municipal election, will probably bo adopted, in order that 'the machinery or the coming campaign may be set in motion without delay WASHINGTON, D. C, February 8. Demanding an investigation of the im migration commission, provided for in a resolution, Macon of Arkansas, re newed his attack upon the commission in the house today. Ho vigorously defended his inform ant, J. II. Patten, secretary of the Im migration Restriction league, who was severely arraigned by Representative Bennett of New York, a member of the commission in a recent speech in the house. "It is chractcristic of the man to proceed TIT the cowardly, way in which the gentleman from New York has pro ceeded," thundered Macon, referring to Bennett's attack on Patten. Bennett 'was quickly on his feet. "I obiect " said he. and thn mem- general feeling is that a lack 6f care bers were all attention in anticination on tho part of the dead men resulted in of a livelv senn. their deaths, but tho jury made no men- l withdraw the remark," quickly lion of this fact in its findings. responded Macon and the tension was Although some feeling existed against dissipated.

MAKES FAST TRIP TO WIN BIG WAGER strnction canir in charge of tho blast ing at the- sccne"bf tho accident, it was reported from Kelvin today that no action would be brought against him, District Attorney O'Connor of Pinal county having made a personal inves tigation of the matter, without finding anything which pointed toward careless ness on Davidson's part. Davidson is in the hospital at Kel vin, but will recover, as he is not badly hurt. 1 B Laid to Rest Under Direc tion of Eagles and Bartenders SAN FRANCISCO, February 8. James Coffroth, the fight promoter, ar rived in Srfn Francisco this evening. He won a bet of $1,000, made with tho National Sporting club of London, that he could reach this city in ten days from London by a margin of two hours and forty 'minutes., v , Under the auspices of the Eagles and the Bartenders' union, tho remains of Sam Buker wero laid to rest yesterday afternoon, with fitting ceremonies. All of the salooas in the city closed during Hio afternoon and practically all of the employes of tho different saloons in tho city were in attendance at tho funeral, which was held from the par lors of F. L. Jones & Son. Buker, a brother of Mrs. A. J. Leon ard, came to this city from Truckee, California, five years ago. Since that timo he had been employed at the St. Elmo, until heart failure caused his death. Buker was well known here and generally liked, s the ttendhce at his funeral-tended to show. to Bennett's defense of tho commission and renewed the charges that the com mittee had been extravagant. Ho de clared the official reports of expense ac counts corroborated his assertions that the trip abroad in 1907 was a' "jun ket," and the government nau haa no adequate returns from the "expenditure by the commission of $057,993. "Unless the resolution to create a commission of three to investigate the extravagance of tho commission is adopted, so the countiy may know that the extravagance complained of is scan dalous, the people .will rise and smite tho party that attempts to shield the commission," said Macon. "Six members of the commission and seven employes made the trip to Eu rope," he said. 'They drew $90,000 on which to make the trip, while iu this report they account for but $2C,075. "The expense accounts arc mado up of steamship and railroad charges, car riage charges, fees, tips, hotel bills, tel egraph, wines, whiskey, cognacs, min eral waters, lemonades, glasses, siphons, citrons, cigars, cleaning, pressing clothes, shaves, sliines, hair cuts, sham poos and rubs. "Such luxuries as wines, whiskey, cognacs and lemonades were allowed by the auditor", but disallowed when it cames to shaves, haircuts, shines and ci gars." Macon characterized the stopping at high class hotels and partaking of men us and beverages as "Feasting -at the public expense." .WEATHER. BULLETIN WASHINGTON, D. C, February 9.- Forecast for Arizona: Fair Wednesday and Thursday. AMATEUR BURGLARS FOILED BY ARRIVAL OF PROPRIETOR Make Escape Bootless After Breaking Into Sultan Brothers Store But for tho fortunate entrance of Harry Sultan into the new Sultan Bro thers department store, at 8 o'clock Idst night, that establishment would pro'D ably havo suffered heavily from the ravages of burglars. The store was broken into shortly bc foro 8 o'clock by what was apparently an amateur burglar. Tho marauder made his entrance through a window in the rear of the business office by break ing the glass and unfastening tho sash catch. Ho had apparently been inside the building for only a few minutes when Mr. Sultan entered tho building. Tho lock on tho south fro'nt door through which Mr. Sultan entered, can bo worked only with difficulty and the noise he made in entering warned tho burglar of his approach. When Mr, Sultan reached the business office, the intruder had fled, leaving only a shat tered window and the mark of a dusty shoe on an opened desk to indicate his visit. Nothing in the store or the office had been touched, but had not Mr. Sultan entered the store when ho did, it is probable that much costly merchandise would have been carried away. The county oflicers made an investi gation within A few minutes after tho burglary was reported, but they wore unablo to secure any clues to the idon' tity of the burglar. Fro mtho naturo of the affair, how ever, it is believed that tho burglary was the work of boys. Footprints on a desk which the intruder used as a step in making an entrance indicalo that but ono porson entered tho store. Tho others, if there were others, than the ono who entered the store, evidently stood guard in the rear of the building. Tho window was evidently kicked in, as glajfs was scattered over the entire office. Every evidence of tho burglary bears tho stamp of an amateur -and it is possible that the job was'dbrto -by boys who hoped to secure jnerchandiso and later dispose of it. v, .f -on - J - 6 ' " v 1 ' 4 ' J"
